A Prayer from the Mission

At the Chaplain’s Mission Archbishop John Sentamu ended his talks with the words of this hymn as a prayer as it summarizes his message.

O holy child of Bethlehem,
descend to us we pray;
cast out our sin, and enter in:
be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
the great glad tidings tell:
O come to us, abide with us,
our Lord Emmanuel.
